Fourteen UP Diliman students – currently enrolled in Journalism 117 (Online Journalism) this semester handled by Assoc. Prof. Danilo Arao – wrote a three-part report on the party-list system. The report had been published in alternative news media websites like Bulatlat and Kodao Productions. The report explains the nature of party-list representation in the 15th, 16th and 17th Congresses.
- Part 1 | Party-list (mis)representatives (https://www.bulatlat.com/2019/05/07/party-list-misrepresentatives/);
- Part 2 | Party-list groups: Family enterprise (https://www.bulatlat.com/2019/05/07/party-list-groups-family-enterprise/); and
- Part 3 | Business league: Congress of the elite (https://www.bulatlat.com/2019/05/07/business-league-congress-of-the-elite/).
Aside from this report, the Online Journalism students produced seven infographics to illustrate how the rich and powerful have hijacked the party-list system in the 15th, 16th and 17th Congresses. Please feel free to view them now.
